Defining Love, Biblically
In times of transition it's valuable to return to the fundamentals. Very soon professional baseball players will head to warmer climates to begin spring training. Even the pros return to the fundamentals! Within our congregation we try to express the fundamentals of our faith with just two words, "Love First." But what is love? How would you define it? Today we return to the fundamentals and turn to God's Word. We will consider what scripture tells us it means to love.

I hope you will agree that "Love First" is a helpful way to express who we are called to be, but have you given much thought to what it means to "Love First" lately? Surely it means something significantly different than being an affectionate church!
Over the next two weeks we are going to return to the fundamentals as we return to God's Word. We will reconsider what it means to love and what it looks like to make love our priority in this world.
